    Shades of Gray- dialectic alternate literature reading assignment

    Hello! I am just wondering if anyone could kind of give me an overall "snippet" of what the book: Shades of Gray is about? It is listed in Year 3 Unit 3 week 24-25 'ish? It's listed as an alternate or extra resource in place of (or in addition to) Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass for Dialectic level. I decided to let my son read this book INSTEAD of the Alice in Wonderland one, he was just glassing over when he read the Alice in Wonderland book and just thought it was a really silly book and was not interested in it, therefore, was not learning much. ANYWAY...b/c there is no worksheet for the book, Shades of Gray, I was maybe going to have him do a book report on it, but I have no way of knowing if it is a good or bad report, b/c I have not read the book myself and of course do not have time to....so, I was just wondering if anyone out there could give me some ideas of what the book is about, maybe it's overall "theme" , etc. Anything would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks so much!!

    Tanya,

    Here is a link to a website dedicated to Shades of Gray by Carolyn Reeder.

    http://www.carolhurst.com/titles/shadesofgray.html

    The review and novel guide are excellent. It even gives comprehension questions, vocab, etc. to go along with the book. I think you will find it very helpful! You can usually browse the web by typing in "Summary of (name of the book) and find lots of information about various books on the alternate list or those you choose to use from your home library.

    I hope this information was helpful. Have a great day!
